Art projects listed under EVENTS + EXHIBITIONS are funded in part with a grant from the Cornell Council for the Arts.
The CCA awards grants to Cornell Faculty, Departments, Programs, Student Organizations, and Student Artists to support creative art projects that engage any singular art form or any mixture of art forms, and may be exhibited, presented, or performed in on-campus as well as off-campus venues.
Spring 2013 (Check back frequently, as events are continually being added.)
7PM, Barton Hall
Emily Parkinson, BS '12 candidate in the Department of Fiber Science and Apparel Design, will present a line of apparel designs inspired by European wrought iron work - intricately patterned gates, structural iron forms, heavy metal keys and locks, and the interplay between iron pieces and their environments. The designer will create a collection of pieces ranging from garments and jewelry to bags and belts.
Wrought iron inspires ANVIL: intricately patterned gates, structural iron forms, heavy metal locks and keys, and the interplay between these pieces and their environments. Wrought iron is precisely detailed but also created by individual hands. In keeping with this duality of metalwork, the designer merges the very exact technology of laser cutting with hand-painted and embellished textiles. ANVIL blurs the lines between jewelry, garments, architecture, and fashion by creating artifacts that adorn the body.
